As Ron Olesko said in his blog, Pete gave us the tools and now we have to use them ( I think that's close). And that in a nut shell is what Toshi and Pete have passed to to many of us.
I went along to that night with my music publisher and my girlfriend , Sue Alkins who sang on Pete's last CD. We had good seats and what a night. The funny thing was I keep bumping into people I knew here and there. So yes there were maybe 18,000 people there but at the same time feel kind of like a reunion of old friends mostly from my early Clearwater days.
From the looks of it Toa looked like he was having a blast and its nice to see him come full circle from what I can remember from so long ago.
I am damn glad this night happened and will forever remember it as imperfect as it might of been with the music sometimes the voices of so many will forever ring. Lets hope it keep on ringing for years to come.
